I can hardly make up my mind if the Cup sink designed by Sandro Meneghello e Marco Paolelli for Artceram is trendy or stylish. I would have to say it is both. This tall espresso cup either all white or with black exterior and white washbasin is more than a freestanding sink, it is a piece of art in your bathroom. The simplicity of the details adds to the style of this unique sink and makes it functional as well as pleasing to the eye. I like the looping handle that makes a perfect place for a towel and the depth of the bowl is a nice change to the usually shallow modern sinks.
With autumn on our doorstep the call to update our wardrobes is loud and clear and what better way to add to the existing collection than a gorgeous Twin-Set by Simona Barbieri. This season’s line by Simona Barbieri is tough to choose from. The pieces are all equally appealing and trendy. I love the short dresses with small matching cardigan, but my absolute favourite is the Red Coat in the picture. A special autumn promotion waves delivery charges for orders between 16th and 23rd of September through the Twin-Set online shop.
Despite its name, Magica is not a magic one legged chair with special standing features. It is the genius creation by Italian designer Davide Conti, who won the 2010 Furniture Design Competition by Design Quest. Magica and Magica2 are two solid chairs designed for minimalist spaces where the contrast of the dark wooden frame and the Plexiglas panels is the key to the dramatic visual effect of two chairs that give the impression of standing on one leg.
Luxury hotels in Sardinia don’t come much better than Cala di Volpe in Porto Cervo. The hotel has all the luxury features you can ask for. There is even private mooring to park your yacht. Fit for the rich and famous this hotel has a fabulous presidential suite with an outstanding terrace with sea views over the bay and its own private presidential pool. The other rooms may not have the same terrace features, but are still a treat. Spacious and finely decorated with a mix of modern features and traditional stone, these suites are divine. In the heart of the Emerald Coast, Porto Cervo is the place to be seen in summer for Hollywood movie stars, sports personalities and the super rich. This kind of clientele demands quality and a range of services available at the drop of a hat.
When it comes to modern living, simple design is always the best. The newspaper and magazine stand designed by DZ Studio is just a tube with holes to insert the rolled up. Full with magazines in the appropriate holes, the stand looks like a modern cactus sculpture. Hence its name, Cacnews could not be more appropriate. The steel column comes in a range of lacquered colours including orange, white, brushed chrome and iron.
We love the new chair shapes by miniforms. These simple linear chairs work well in any modern home or in elegant office spaces. The Quartz model comes as a chair or as a more comfortable armchair look. Both have a chrome base with removable covers in wool, eco-leather or cotton in a range of vibrant and stylish colours. The winner for its timeless and linear design is the Zeta chair. Zeta is the Italian for the letter Z, which is clearly an appropriate name for it. The Zeta chair has a chrome base and is lined with wool, cotton or eco-leather in large variety of colours.
These stylish pebble shaped stools have been designed by Andrea Di Filippo and Enrico Zanolla from the Italy-based DZstudio. Stones are not just for sitting, but also a handy storage place for all those things you inevitably have lying around but you don’t want to spoil your clean modern living space. Stones are available in different colours of leather.
